The general plan to build Iran’s first igloo-style tourist resort in Qazvin has been approved by the city council and the municipality.  

The idea of the innovative multi-purpose complex, which was put forward by an unnamed private stakeholder, was discussed in the meeting of the high council for investment attended by the members of the council, the mayor and deputy mayors of Qazvin. It was approved unanimously.

The scheme includes portable igloo-style (semispherical) suites of 20 to 25 square meters which will be built in Barajin National Park once preliminary studies are completed. The project will be fully funded by the private sector.

“Staying in such facilities offers tourists a different and unique experience,” said Nasser Ganji, investment and public participation deputy at Qazvin Municipality.

Emphasizing that the project is ecofriendly, Ganji said the fact that this innovative project was completely designed by Iranian architects and will be funded by domestic investors makes it all the more special.

“The resort will be visually attractive and have a unique appearance,” the official said, adding that it is a low-cost project. “Should the project prove to be a success, we’ll expand it,” Ganji noted.
